This 45 was given to me by my uncle in a bag along with some Michael Jackson records, a Los Destellos record, and another equally perplexing yet amazing 45 by a guy named Luis Bullion, which sounds like something Allan Vega would make if he was from Peru.
Anyways, I asked my uncle where he got this one but his memory was fuzzy. He seemed to have had it in his closet since the 70’s. I couldn’t find any info on the Centro Musical de San Jacinto other than the fact that San Jacinto is a town in the province of Ancash in northern Peru and that Oscar Araunjo was apparently the band leader. I love it because it has such a unique style, equal parts huayno, huaylash, cumbia, free jazz, and hard-core especially with the fuzzed out guitar/bass! I provided rebajada versions to for all you cumbia stoners. Provecho
